I can view them just fine. They are being pulled from YouTube. We don't have much multimedia expertise so I need a little advice on why a video would hesitate playing through the site but not when played directly from YouTube. Also, is there anyway to submit the site
videos to a kind of "test" to show streaming speed differences?
Thanks for any help!
I don't see how any service could actually measure "speed of videos" as there are so many factors that can affect downloading including:
- speed of pc viewing the video
- compression used in making the video
Any service that would be measuring speed would only be good to measure videos against each other on the same service.

I suggest you take some high quality you tube promotion vides from the home page and embed it into the page in a similar way you have already done.
The client will then be able to see the load times are the same for a high level you tube production as it is for his video.
You could also upload it to some of the other video hosting sites and show the difference in the pages, you never know you might find something that works a little quicker.
